First Line Friday – 7 April 2017 – Beyond Justice (Cara Putman)


Hello First Liners! It’s Friday again, which means it’s time to share another first line with you. This week I’m sharing the first line from Cara Putman’s new release, Beyond Justice. Here’s a little bit about it:

~ About the Book ~

Hayden is on track to become the youngest partner in her prestigious DC law firm . . .

If the case she’s just been handed doesn’t destroy her first.

Hayden McCarthy knows firsthand the pain that follows when justice is not served. It’s why she became an attorney and why she’s so driven in her career. When she’s assigned a wrongful death case against the government, she isn’t sure if it’s the lucky break she needs to secure a partnership—or an attempt to make sure she never gets there.

Further complicating matters is Andrew Wesley, her roommate’s distractingly attractive cousin. But Andrew’s father is a congressman, and Hayden’s currently taking on the government. Could the timing be any worse?

The longer she keeps the case active, the higher the stakes become. Unknown enemies seem determined to kill the case—or her. Logic and self-preservation indicate she should close the case. But how can she, when justice is still just beyond her reach?

If he didn’t find that flash drive now, he would have to disappear. Immediately.

As a former legal secretary, I’m looking forward to reentering that world for a little while, even if it is only through the pages of a book!

  2. Good morning! My first line is from “Stone and Snow,” by Sibella Giorello. I love the Raleigh Harmon mysteries. I’m catching up on the young Raleigh Harmon books.

    I laughed when I read this. It just struck me funny! 🙂

    This book is on my Want to Read list.
    Yesterday I read Pepper Basham’s book Just the Way You Are ~sigh~ It’s so good that I will read it again soon. My first line:
    “One step into the massive, glass-walled waiting area was all it took.”
